Now I have experienced and experimented with this substance since I have discovered it almost 5 months ago. I have been careful and selective with my approach to it, sampling and experiencing it in very spaced out intervals. Perhaps it is due to my unique physiology, but when I smoke Sceletium I find its effects hit when instantaneously and strong.
Since I have experienced it the effects of this substance over and over, I will sum up the shared defined characteristics that Sceletium has shown to me (and my unique physiology).
I usually smoke my dose in a water bong. The effects are noticed literally 5 seconds after inhalation. Immediately I get this rush of intensity and extreme anxiety. I find that EVERY single time I smoke while sitting I am standing and pacing back and forth within 1-2 minutes. I have heard comparisons of this substance to MDMA and while I notice comparable effects (slightly positive), like energy potentiation and motivation, there are negative effects that I believe outweigh the positive ones (personal preference). I did not like the fact that I felt extremely anxious on this, as I already have mild anxiety issues.
Also, there is a ringing in the ear and rapid acceleration of heart beat that adds to the discomfort of the anxiety aspects.
